OEDW has been accepted for taking place at EKAW 2012 conference

We are happy that the proposal for the first edition of the international workshop on Ontology Engineering in a Data-driven world has been accepted by the workshop chairs of EKAW 2012.

About

Is the current data-driven world going to kill ontologies? Are we navigating towards a shallow Web of Data? The purpose of the initial edition of the 1st International Workshop on Ontology Engineering in a Data-driven World is to discuss challenges and opportunities for the Ontology Engineering discipline in the context of the further evolving Linked Data success story.

To achieve this we call for papers which deal with topics such as guidelines, methods, and tools for Linked Data engineering; methods for ontology reuse in the Linked Data context, methods and techniques for ontology mapping in the Linked Data context, guidelines, methods, and tools for database to RDF mappings; life cycle management in the context of Linked Data; creation of knowledge out of (Linked) Open Data; ontology repositories; empirical findings and statistics about ontologies underlying Linked Data; case studies on Ontology Engineering in the context of Linked Data; amongst others.

As a special feature we also call for position papers that address the two aforementioned core questions of the workshop and which can be seen controversial from either an Ontology Engineering perspective or a Linked Data perspective.
